The first of the three-match ODI series between South Africa Women and Pakistan Women will be played at Kingsmead, Durban.
The match is scheduled to start at 10:00 AM local time (1:30 PM IST) on Wednesday, 20th January.
South Africa Women will take on Pakistan Women in the first of the 3-match ODI series, here at the Kingsmead on Wednesday. When Pakistan toured South Africa last time in 2019, the series ended in a stalemate. The hosts have a good head-to-head record against Pakistan, as they have won 3 of their last 5 matches. South Africa has whitewashed New Zealand 3-0 in their own back yard when they played last time and should be buzzing with confidence coming into this tour.
On the other hand, Pakistan Women haven’t had much International exposure since December 2019, but domestic competition has helped them to prepare for this series.They have got a good bunch of players at their disposal in the likes Javeria Khan, Nashra Sandhu and Nahida Khan. With all of that being said, South Africa are likely to start the series with a win.
